Remember Me? I'm Will Clark

As the entire baseball world has just about soaked up Jason Heyward's dramatic homerun in his first major league at bat, I found a few more guys who have experienced that very same thing. A couple of them were Atlanta Braves, just like Heyward. In fact, Jordan Schafer homered in his first at bat for the Braves last season. Jermaine Dye went yard for Atlanta in 1996 in his first major league plate appearance. Will Clark (above) accomplished the feat in 1986 as a member of the San Francisco Giants. Don't forget, not all homeruns hit in first major league at bats were hit on Opening Day, as was Heyward's. And very few were as dramatic as his!
